The restaurant was cozy and the waitress was very friendly, but the food was not what I expected. The falafels are not served in pita bread but are more like a fried tortilla wrap. Also, they were out of several ingredients when we went, so we were limited in what we could order. The food was pretty tasty, but you'll... More

Thank you for reviewing our restuarant. I am so sorry that you couldn't try all our food. It is quite dificult to have everything at all times in our tiny place, especially as we are preparing everything fresh from scratch several times daily. We are also sorry that you were disappointed by the Falafel. The recipe is from a friend... More

I ate here at least 5 times during my two week stay in Guanajuato. The typical Mexican restaurants don't often have a ton of vegan options, so it was refreshing to be able to order several items on this menu. The falafel was always crispy, hot, and flavorful. They do over-grill/toast the pita a bit (for my taste), but I... More

This turned out to be one of my best meals in Guanajuato. The portion is fantastic, freshly prepared, and delicious. I try to eat at a different place for every meal but almost broke that rule a couple times to get another wrap from this little gem. Nice ambiance and laid back, friendly staff round out the experience.

There aren't many places around Guanajuato where you can get falafel nevermind falafel that is this good! My boyfriend lives in Leon and there are a few food truck parks where you can find falafel but it tastes like the mix you buy in the stores and make at home. I was so happy when we found Habibti. It is... More

My husband loves Middle Eastern cuisine so, while in Guanajuato we stumbled upon this small yet mighty Eatery with five tables and a bar. The falafel was so good that my husband and Romulo ate two sandwiches with Limonada and fresh Ice Tea. Excellent experience- tasteful and highly recommended. Gracias.

Really great ingredients, friendly service although a bit slow, but the healthiest fast food you will find in Guanajuato. Everything tastes good. Also, cold beer. What is not to like?

Cute little place to eat and relax alone or with friends, best falafel ever, the staff was amazing and funny. Try the hummus or the taboulé.
